The Eurotower is the current Headquarters of the European Central Bank. The ECB will be moving to East Harbour sometime in 2016.
The Eurotower is a well-known skyscraper located at Willy-Brandt-Platz in the financial district of Frankfurt. It was built in 1977 and was home to the European Monetary Institute until 1998, when the European Central Bank was established.
Outside the tower is the famous giant Euro symbol. Take a minute to have your photo taken in front of the European currency statue that represents the financial unification of Europe – a political and social effort designed to avoid the conflicts that devastated Europe twice in the 20th century and many times before.
The Eurotower is the seat of the European Central Bank, is about 150 meters high and is currently the 12th tallest building in Frankfurt.
Next to the Eurotower is the finance district of Frankfurt, a spacious park (part of Frankfurt’s Green Belt), and it is easy to walk to from the city centre and the station quarter.
To get to the Eurotower by public transport, there is an underground U-Bahn (U1, U2, U3, U8) station and an aboveground tram (Trams 11 and 12) station at Willy-Brandt-Platz.
There is a Euro Information Centre on the first floor, open Monday to Friday: 10.30 a.m. - 2.30 p.m, but closed on Thursdays.
